Random Structures: from the Discrete to the Continuous
LMS Research School on Probability at the University of Bath
1-5 July 2019
The push to understand the behaviour of continuous scaling limits arising from discrete random structures is a major ongoing development in probability theory. This research school will give PhD students in probability the opportunity to meet and learn from international experts at the forefront of this exciting and fast moving field.
